Scotland fans were ‘exemplary’ in their behaviour in London says SFA

Scotland supporters have been praised for their ‘exemplary’ behaviour before, during and after Wednesday night’s friendly with England at Wembley.

Scotland supporters have been praised for their ‘exemplary’ behaviour before, during and after Wednesday night’s friendly with England at Wembley.

A 20,000-strong Tartan Army travelled to London to see their side lose 3-2 to the Auld Enemy for the first clash between the two nations since 1999 and the usually brash and ill-disciplined majority reportedly produced their best conduct.

"Firstly, on behalf of my colleagues at the Scottish FA and the network of people responsible for the security provision around the game I would like to thank the supporters for showing their passion and commitment in an exemplary manner," said the Scottish Football Association's Security and Integrity Officer David Brand.

"In speaking to all relevant authorities last night and again this morning, the general consensus is that the Scotland fans' behaviour throughout was impeccable.

"We had 20,000 fans travelling to London and we have only been alerted to two arrests for minor offences outside the stadium.

"I think that statistic alone is testament to the fun but respectful manner in which the Scotland supporters travel.

"I know the fans would like to see the fixture played more regularly and I firmly believe that the excitement created in London and the atmosphere generated inside Wembley can only enhance the prospect of a return match at Hampden Park in the not-too-distant future."
